Home Buyers Survey in Audlem

RICS Level 2 Survey

Is it best to choose a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Audlem and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a RICS Level 3 Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Audlem property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you book a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey is less cheap, but it will give comprehensive details of the Audlem property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

On a Audlem RICS Level 2 Survey what impact can a an red light rating have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate Importantly, the possible use of asbestos components will be covered. The suspected use fibre-cement or asbestos cement, for example, is included in Section E. Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered regency home in Audlem that I wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact a kind of smooth render. Typically it is applied to brick to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. It is very grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Georgian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Audlem can report issues such as when there is movement of the underlying wall causes cracks. Other issues could result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Resolving problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What subsidence issues does the Property Surveyor report on?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a building and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement does happen in newly constructed buildings, and is rarely a cause for concern. The property's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, this should quickly settle. Less common than subsidence, heave occurs when the ground is forced up rather than down. Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. Collapsed water pipes can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This may be referred to as groundwater subsidence. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which then decomposes, can also undermine the foundations. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil. Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
